The LA Ink and Miami Ink star is expecting a baby boy with her husband and lead singer of rock duo Prayers, Rafael Reyes.
Kat Von D - who is pregnant with her first child - is sick of people giving her parenting advice and has also announced that the baby is going to arrive to the world drug free and will never be given any vaccinations.
The LA Ink and Miami Ink star, whose real name is Katherine von Drachenberg, is expecting a baby boy with her husband and lead singer of rock duo Prayers, Rafael Reyes.
The tattooed beauty took to Instagram to show off her growing baby bump, and in the caption she went on a full rant, asking people to keep their negative, extremely unsolicited opinions and parenting tips to themsleves.
When the 36-year-old announced her preganancy last month, she said in an Instagram post that right then she knew that she would be bombarded with several advices and suggestions on pregnancy.
Her birth plan includes a drug free, water birth using a midwife and a doula, and if anybody has anything negative or opposing to say about it, she doesn't want to hear any of it.
She said: "I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable - unsolicited none the less.
"I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy. My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead.
"If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you - try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations."
She added: "My point being: I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority. So your negative comments are not going influence my choices - actual research and educating myself will - which i am diligently doing.
"This is my body. This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey. Feel free to follow me on here if you like what I’m about - whether it’s tattooing, lipstick, Animal Rights, sobriety, feminism, ridiculous gothiness, black flower gardening, cats, or my adorable husband. But if you don’t dig a certain something about what I post, i kindly ask that you press the unfollow button and move the f**k on.
"So before anyone of you feel inspired to tell me how to do this, I would appreciate you keeping your unsolicited criticism to yourself. More importantly, for those who have amazing positive energy to send my way, I will gladly and graciously receive it with love! X"
